Most people who become infected with HPV will not have any symptoms and will clear the infection on their own.Some of these viruses are called "high-risk" types, and may cause abnormal Pap tests.Human papillomavirus is the name of a group of viruses that includes more than 100 different strains or types.
This may be due to male-to-female transmissions being more likely than female-to-male transmission. HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause, but they also are released between outbreaks from skin that does not appear to be broken or to have a sore.
Generally, a person can only get HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection.
Genital HSV-1 outbreaks recur less regularly than genital HSV-2 outbreaks. There is no treatment that can cure herpes, but antiviral medications can shorten and prevent outbreaks during the period of time the person takes the medication.
In addition, daily suppressive therapy for symptomatic herpes can reduce transmission to partners.
They may also lead to cancer of the cervix, vulva, vagina, anus, or penis.
